Vintage White Sequinned Berber Wedding Blanket

£350.00

I have been fortunate to attend a Berber wedding deep in the Atlas Mountains, and as part of the elaborate ceremony (the wedding is 3 days long), the bride (rosa) is draped with a hand-woven blanket (handira) embellished with a thousand silver sequins -- to give the married couple a thousand years of happiness. How lovely is that?

This vintage creamy white handira wedding blanket was found buried under rugs in the Marrakech souk. They make lovely bed throws! Cotton (and sequins!).
